Abstract: Objective To develop a liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) screen-ing method for 45 poisonous alkaloids in blood. Methods Identification was based on the compound’s retention time and two precursor-to-production transitions. The method involved a liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) followed by LC-MS/MS with multiple-reaction monitoring (MRM). When 1 mL of blood was ex-tracted with diethyl ether at pH=9.2 with SKF525A as the internal standard, the target compounds were an-alyzed with LC-MS/MS in the positive ionization mode. Results The target alkaloids had good linearity (r>0.995 1), both the intra-day precision and inter-day precision being less than 14.77%. The limits of detection ranged from 0.05 to 25 ng/mL in blood. Conclusion The method is selective and sensitive in detecting poisonous alkaloids with a total running time of 12 minutes; therefore it was successfully ap-plied to some actual cases of suspected alkaloids poisoning.
